This won’t take much winning and Emmet Mullins runs two with Magen's Moon preferred to Lambs Lane. Melody Of Scotland has her sights lowered but it’s a while since she showed her best form. The four-year-old Fading Icon is one to consider and Pads also has a squeak while Brian Hughes rides bottom weight Cully Mac. WINDY WRITER will need to show a recent course and distance third was no fluke but races off a lower mark today.
